After a tough day in the trenches, a nice long bath and a massage sounds like just the thing, right!? Well, that’s what these babies reckon, anyway…
Relax baby, relax…
Life’s tough when you’re a baby… not only do you have to work hard all day being SUPER CUTE, there are also the stresses of everyday life – you know, when you are pushed into a life of eating, pooping, sleeping and cuddling, you need a little break from time to time, right?
So a Perth company have come to the rescue with their new Baby Spa Perth – “a sanctuary for babies (newborn to six months) and their parents, offering unique hydrotherapy sessions, baby massage and support.”
Baby Spa Perth also use a patented flotation device dubbed the BUBBY, which wraps around baby’s neck and helps them to float in deep water without strain or stress, “allowing them freedom of movement that they would otherwise not experience”. Frankly, I think I need one of these for myself!

Benefits of pampering your bub
Baby spas are not a new idea – founder Laura Sevenus started the franchise over in the UK and it has now spread to Spain, South Africa and Western Australia.
The team at Baby Spa Perth say that not only is hydrotherapy relaxing, it also promotes a number of benefits for babies, including increasing muscular and skeletal strength, building lung capacity and stimulating their swimming reflexes. Floating (aka hydrotherapy) gives the arms and legs freedom to move, which can promote physical, emotional, and mental development. There is even some evidence that neonatal swimming can accelerate a baby’s growth in the early stage of life.
A typical Baby Spa session lasts up to an hour and includes anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes of casual floating in a warm bath, followed by a relaxing baby massage using grape seed oil. A hydrotherapy and massage session can cost anywhere from about $64 for a 60-minute group session to $250 for a private session.
The internet loves Baby Spa!
Since Baby Spa Perth joined Instagram, followers have flocked to their page, with their account now boasting over 11,000 followers. And I can see why – the pics they share from their baby spa sessions are absolutely adorable!
